20 Weeks! :)

Wow! 20 Weeks already?! Time is sure flying and I'm happy about that. I still don't really feel as though it's real and I don't really feel pregnant yet. haha! I'm finally starting to "show" a little. But most people would probably just think I was fat.So far I can't really complain, I was only really sick for weeks 6-8 and then after that I felt pretty good. I only threw up 4 times and it wasn't that bad. Scott and I were able to hear the heartbeat at my 13 week appointment and it was amazing :) and then I got to hear it again at my 17 week appointment. Being able to hear/see my little one is so incredible! I had my first ultrasound at 6 weeks when the baby was only a blob and didn't look like anything but we did get to see the heartbeat on the screen and that was good enough for me. We get to find out the gender next week on the 29th! but we aren't telling family or friends till our gender party on June 3rd. I really don't care what I have, I would be truly happy with either. I'm so excited for Scott to be able to see our baby for the first time. I think it will help him and I feel as though it is real!! I seriously can't wait. I felt the baby move for the first time when I was 18 weeks and it was the strangest feeling ever, but also super wonderful at the same time. I only feel him/her every now and then but I'm sure that will change as he/she grows bigger and bigger. This is such an amazing experience and I am so grateful for all that I have been blessed with. I have incredible family and friends that are so supportive and excited for the baby to come. As of now I'm still working full time and will continue to do so as long as I can. I unfortunately do get pretty bad back pain sometimes at the end of a long day, but my baby is worth it and I just suck it up. I'm just truly hoping it doesn't get a ton worse as the weeks go along. Well I have to run to work! Just wanted to write a quick note and post the first picture I have taken so far in this journey. I'll definitely take more and try to keep people updated. We are so happy and we continue to hope and pray that everything will go smoothly. :)
